Best laid plans

04 January 2010
Our intent was to start right out on 1 January recording all our purchases, savings, etc. For the past 5 days, We've been working through all sorts of problems with our new DSL service. On the bright side, it WAY beats dial-up! We finally gave up on the funky desktop until we can get it to the shop. It seems to have picked up a virus, though our new provider's virus scan came up empty. So, for now, it's laptop only. This is cramping our style just a bit as we were actually swiveling back and forth between the two machines for a couple days. Catching up with all the fun stuff we've been missing the past few weeks on one, seeking out deals and printing coupons on the other; we had a nice little rhythm going there. 8-Þ

Anyhow, we'll try to gather up all the receipts we've collectively collected so far this week and add them in here as time allows. Hope 2010 is a 10 for y'all. 8-]

Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^


About Me

My photo
I'm a native-born Florida Cracker, graduated Christian home schooling mom/teacher, jill of all trades and mistress of none. Rising prices and dwindling assets pushed me over the edge from casual to extreme couponing. In the first quarter of 2010, we cut our grocery budget from $1600+/- to $300! I always thought all those 'coupon queen' stories weren't for average people like me. Was I ever wrong! Just jump in and start clipping. Check out some of the super savers in my blog list. Honestly, I know you've heard this before, but REALLY, if I can do it, ANYBODY can!
